Landlord and tenant – Lease. The Chancery Division, on the claimant's claim for, among other things, a decree of specific performance in respect of the defendant company's obligation to take a new lease, held that the defendant's contention that the lease had been surrendered by operation of law failed, it had pleaded no other defence to the claim for a decree of specific performance and there was no other ground on which such a claim ought to be denied.
